Oh, didn't know you had met him! No photo? I haven't seen nearly enough of him to say whether he was this far off his 5'11 spotlight listing. He probably isn't 5'11, but can look a good 5'10 from what I've seen. Compared with 6ft listed Rick Yune: Click Here, and Mark Ryan who you've met and listed 5'9: Click Here, I wouldn't say he looked under 5'10.

Well he's somewhere around 177 I feel, Mark I think could be 173-4 nowadays.

I'll eventually get back to uploading photos.

I have been looking at uploading short videos as a visual supplement to adding their photo on here, also including the mugshots too.
I'm trying to find the right length for them, and whether it's actually worth the time. I need a few months to decide, hence why I have been slow to upload in 2019!

One thing I'd like to mention to visitors - please consider in future - use the 'save page' on ( (or grab screenshots) as much as possible when adding links in your comments to other sites because the chance of archive itself vanishing is tiny, but the chance of your link becoming a dead end is massive.

Link rot is a real big problem.

On this site it just grows every year - the percentage of links in comments that are dead ends is staggering. For any interesting quotes or articles, it's something I should have been doing myself over the years, because in the majority of instances I saved the quote text itself from the article, but didn't archive the article/source itself!...and a lot of original sources have gone, url structures have changed, articles themselves have been deleted or moved behind a paywall now.

One thing I haven't changed is this site structure.

In 2005 if anybody linked to:

Then in 2019 that link will still work!

Rob, are you sure on 5'9.5 for him? He looks well over that with Ray Stevenson here: Click Here.
Editor Rob
I'd have said that's around the kind of range he looks in person, close to 177cm.

I tought he looked around 180cm in Black Sails. Didn't pay special attention, but he must have had some solid footwear, or that's bad news for the whole show's cast but Tom Hopper.

5'9.5 inches looks about right. I was watching the Netflix lost in space series. If Molly parker and and Mina Sundwall are really 5'5" or so it makes sense.

Didn't look taller than 5'9" next to Brosnan. And he played the same character as Will Yun Lee (after genetic modification), who's listed here as 5'8.5" (174 cm).

Stood beside him at the railway station. Surprised how small he was. 5 foot 8 max. If 5.9 definitely in lifts.

Looked 5'10 - 5'11 next to 6'1.5 Brosnan in die another day. Must of had him in lifts. I'm surprised he's a mid 5'9 range guy.

You can see it a weeny bit actually with Maggie in that gingery/freckly skin tone.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Dec/16
I didn't realize he was Maggie Smith's son, Looks nothing like her or Robert Stephens. Good looking guy but you can tell he's ginger and tries to hide it!
Arch Stanton said on 16/Dec/16
Rob can you add The Machine? Are you sure he's this low? In fact in The Machine I thought he looked 4-5 inches taller than Denis Lawson!! Does he wear lifts? I honestly thought he looked about 6 ft in it.

He looks 5'10 FT in Black Sails...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Oct/16
I thought near 5ft11!
Johan said on 3/Sep/16
Wow , now this is a shocker. I wouldn't have guessed him any less than 5ft 11 from watching Black Sails. Tom Hopper is pushing 6ft 5 and it certainly doesn't look more than 6 inches while Ray Stevenson looked only 4-5 in taller when they duelled over the fleet.

Must have had some nice boots or something.

Wow, this is surprising! I had him pegged as 5'10" based on his height relative to Luke Arnold on Black Sails. Stephens has 1-2" on Arnold, so Arnold, who is listed as 5'9", should be downgraded to at least 5'8.5".
